What’s on the Menu?


Restaurant owners must use specific and vivid nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, and prepositional phrases to
appeal to their customers’ senses and make them want to order food from their restaurant. Your mission is to
create the most interesting, delicious, scrumptious, mouth-watering, tantalizing, colorful, tasteful, tempting
restaurant menu you can imagine! Try creating a menu for a specific type of restaurant. Ideas to consider
include a pancake/waffle house, pizza place, ice cream parlor, sandwich shop, coffee shop, steak house, seafood
restaurant, etc. You must complete each of the following items:

1. Design a colorful, interesting cover with the name of your restaurant and a picture.

2. Create at least TEN food items to put on your menu. Think about how you will name each item. What
sounds more appetizing and is easier to imagine: “chicken” or “rosemary grilled chicken breast”?

3. Include a realistic price and short description for each item.

4. Separate your menu into different categories such as Appetizers, Soup of the Day, Salads, Entrees, Side
Orders, Beverages, Desserts, Specials, etc.

5. Once you are finished, neatly underline exactly TEN different adjectives in red.
Example:
Homemade Breadsticks $3.75
Five generously-sized breadsticks brushed lightly with butter and sprinkled with garlic

6. Neatly underline exactly TEN different nouns in yellow.


Example:
Homemade Breadsticks $3.75
Five generously-sized breadsticks brushed lightly with butter and sprinkled with garlic

7. Neatly underline exactly THREE different verbs in green.


Example:
Homemade Breadsticks $3.75
Five generously-sized breadsticks brushed lightly with butter and sprinkled with garlic

8. Neatly underline exactly THREE different adverbs in blue.


Example:
Homemade Breadsticks $3.75

9. Neatly underline exactly THREE different prepositional phrases in brown.


Example:
